Cities for People: Jan Gehl speaks in Vancouver

Danish architect Jan Gehl is delivering two lectures next week in Vancouver.

On Monday, January 24, 2011, he takes the stage at the Vancouver Playhouse to deliver the annual Arthur Erickson lecture. Doors open at 6:00pm, and the lecture begins at 7:00pm.

On Wednesday, January 26, 2011, Gehl enlightens his audience on liveable cities in the 21st century at the Liu Institute for Global Studies at 2:00pm. Refreshments will be served at 3:00pm, followed by a round-table discussion at 3:30 pm on urban design and the healthy city. Based on evidence and practice, this discussion features Gehl and leading figures from government, industry and academia. This event is moderated by Patrick Condon (SALA) and Lawrence Frank (SCARP/SOEH).

These two events are generously supported by the University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, and Kasian.
